The gang consists of
1. sla wanted for KUI ( KEYBOARDING UNDER THE INFLUENCE) the chief BIGOT and leader of this gang of buffoons!
2. Tomboy AKA Norman Bates or Tomboy, lives with his "ma" Norma Bates, He has unresolved sexual issues and is the poet laureate of the Gang! He is missing from this site and could be wandering anywhere on the net!
3 Washington State Cougar and Florida Retiree are to more associates of these Hijackers they definitely could plead insanity and be found not guilty for following the lead of sla and TOMMYBOY!
Fear not good citizens of this forum I WILL drive them from this site if they continue with their idiotic bigoted inane drivel!!
So Mr. Bill calls us bigots.
Why because I think OBOZO is a moron President.
SO we are morons. But then we find out that he is a Black man,
who calls white people bigots.
He is another , Al Sharpton. A Black Archie Bunker.
So Bill how is Obozo doing?
He asked Iran to please give us back our Drone, Pretty please.

Sla can you say KUI!!!! Sober up and let me know about your next site. How did you arrive at the false deduction that I am black, I could be a Frenchman from Pawtucketville, a Greek from the Acre, a Polish kid from Dom Polski, an Irishman from Christian Hill or Portuguese from Back Central St. For some reason I suspect you are a bigot because of a lack of reasoning ability. In other words your just not too bright! Perhaps you could have your candidate Herman run as a third party candidate, you could start a "Lowellians For Herman" Group. You could then say "see I'm not a bigot" but from your comments you would be found guilty of bigotry. If I were you I'd just plead stupidity and you would probably get off the charge of Bigotry!

My situation is different. I've worked my entire life, been a partner in my marriage with my husband. Except when he was deployed with the military, he has always pitched in at home with chores and our sons, and I've always worked to contribute to the household income. I faced the same obstacles women face today...from child care to work politics and salary challenges, and the unique situation of a spouse who was gone much of the time. But I never thought I should just sit at home and make him be the sole support of our family. But my son's both married women who don't want to work. The both cite the old 'I want to be there for the kids' mantra. However, the stress they put on my son's is enormous. There is no way in today's economy they can earn enough to pay all the bills, especially our younget. His partner has three children, none his biologically, and she won't work. During the rare times that she has gotten a job, she manages to get fired within a few months. There is always an excuse, somebody else always did something to cause it, but I know it is her bad attitude and work ethic. So our son's have borrowed from us, again and again, to make up for the shortfall due to deadbeat wives. We've helped as much as we can because we can't stand the pressure our son's are under, and because our grandchildren are the ones who really suffer when the bills aren't paid and groceries can't be bought. It has made life really stressful for me. My husband is retired, disabled now, but even though I am approaching social security retirement age, I won't be able to retire. Our finances have been devastated by the women who think they should just stay home. And, they don't 'work' in the home. Especially the second one...their home is filthy, and she expects him to come home from 10-12 hour workdays and manage the kids, cook, walk the dog, and she makes the children, all under 10, do whatever housework he can't and she won't. I feel trapped by these women. When I suggest they get a job they say they can't find work that makes it worth their time, or they don't want to do the kind of work they can find. During part of my husband's military career I cleaned houses for income, because that was what I could find at that duty station, so I greatly resent the women who won't do whatever it takes for the survival of their family, and for their own independence. My husband and I have now decided that we can't be the emergency fund any longer, and he plans to tell our sons that their wives need to get jobs, because I've worked 46 years and I'm tired now. We simply can't afford it, and will probably never recover from all the help we've given them. We love our son's and hate seeing them so stressed by a situation where their partner won't contribute, but we're tapped out. The sad part is, I fully expect their wives to take the part of the martyr...poor them.

I hope your rant made you feel better. Now ask yourself why your sons have so little self esteem they married deadbeats?
With kids involved, it will be hard for them to escape, but, hopefully, they won't produce anymore kids that will make them stay with these useless women.(Are vasectomies covered by insurance?)
Same thing happened to our son. He acts "aloof" but lives with the mother of his children. Just a layabout, who expects the older child to raise the baby. Wish he had the self esteem to go with his "attitude". Good luck.

Grandma, I agree that you providing assistance is not the answer to the problem as we can see by the end results which you describe. By continuing to provide assistance only allows the problem to continue further. I believe the "Tough Love" approach applies in the situation you present to us. As loving parents to our children we only want the best for them and also want to provide assistance when needed. However, there comes a point in time when it's best to let them control their own destiny and constantly being there to always make the boo-boo better is not in the best interest of all concerned. Somethimes when we fall and have pick ourselves up and make things better on our own makes us stronger individuals. My suggesttion is to get on with your life and let your children take responsibility for their own lives.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

It appears that you need to learn that the season for Peace and Joy should continue all year long and not for just a few weeeks while we all celebrate the Lord.

Are you telling us now that you have your own Holiday, which would not surprise me at all.

I have never heard of "Happy Festivus" nor do I think I want too.

I've always been a man to respect another persons beliefs, but it's hard to do that when they don't have any or they make up their own. In any event, may the peace of the Lord be with you!

www.lronhubbard.org , here is something you should look into, it has more meat on it than what you are admiring.

From your prior writings I am not surprised that you would be a cult follower. Some people should not watch TV and attend church more often! Go have a chat with your local pastor, Amen.
